Be sure you use the correct spec, that is in inch-pounds... So that is only about 13 foot-pounds

All car parts have a specific torque value.... But you can just snug the plugs down like you have done before, that's how I do it. Just be careful not to over tighten them as the head is aluminum and you can strip the holes a lot easier than on an iron head.
